Ahed Tamimi to Join the Palestine Demonstration Tomorrow
WASHINGTON - The Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi, famous for confronting Israeli soldiers in the Occupied Territories and serving eight months in an Israeli Prison, will be joining the national demonstration for Palestine tomorrow, Saturday 11 May.
Stop the War Convenor, Lindsey German, comments:
"We are delighted that Ahed Tamimi is joining us in London tomorrow. We have always shown solidarity with the Palestinians and she has become a symbol of the brutal treatment of children and young people at the hands of the Israelis. Thousands will march tomorrow to call for justice for the Palestinians at a time when there are growing threats to the Palestinians from Netanyahu and Trump and the threat of further war hangs over the Middle East."
